I used NiteShades tint-paint. I like them.
I don't know how they'd look on a lighter car though.

I went the opposite way and changed the yellow lenses for clear ones with yellow bulbs...

Guess I want it to be known I'm turning or changing lanes (plus it looks better on the silver car).

Why not just by them already smoked out. What is with the tinting.

I'd rather spend time enjoying what I'm doing with my car, rather than clicking a button and popping a new lens in. Plus I'm an engineer so I like hands-on stuff.[:p]

I did it on my Europa Blue 97. Looks good IMO. On white it may look pretty good...do it and see. You can always remove it with fingernail polish remover or something.

probably because spray tint is alot cheaper and looks virtually the same. [:D]

I'm not sure what that has to do with Honda, I like it and it looks good.

side makers are somthing that is so small on the car. its not going to stand out alot. it would just give you somthing unique to yourself. no one else is going to notice it

your stupid, my car has smoked side markers and they look euro not ricer, your lame, its a sick looking upgrade and it looks good, i bought mine but if i had the time i might have painted the stockers. it looks clean on my silver a4, shoot me an email if you would like me to send you a pick. dont want to post it on the forum and hear that my car looks like a honda by some noob.

I think it looks good actually.. I bought clear side markers, but I do like the look of tinted ones..

Now that was a clever idea! Looks really good IMO on the silver car.

tinted on white is too much of a contrast, I think clear ones would look best on a white car

I'd get tinted ones if there was other tinted lenses on the car like the headlights and tailights. Other tha that it looks out of place to me.

as much as i'm about diy, the lenses cost 20-30 bux shipped. just buy them pre-tinted.

evil tinted side markers would go well on your car imo. you have the whole black and silver theme. i think it would be a nice touch

I was going to go that route, but I'm still not sure about my tailights yet. Don't know which smoked ones to get.

i have been thinking about doing a diy on tinting mine myself. but on a white car im not sure how it would look but depending on what taillights you have. i would tint them myself with a black glossy paint. and leave the white strip untouched. or also lltek has some decent ones.
